“Needs a refurbishment but nice location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Location **** (out of max 5) very nice location ca. 8 km from Philisburg on the French side in the bay of Oyster Pond. Supermarkets, coffee shops, restaurants either within the resort are in close to the hotel
Room. ** (out of max five). Old fashioned large room with nice view to the marina. Mountings in the bath partially do not work properly (too old). Room very clean.
Infrastructure *** (internet, reception, pool etc). Most of the time nobody at reception. Pool nice located but old fashioned. Internet sometimes ok sometimes not.
Breakfast ***( out of max five). French breakfast (croissants, baguette and marmalade). Everything else has to be paid CASH. They do not accept credit cards (for breakfast) or charging to the room. Two scrambled eggs 5 USD.
Overall rating. *** (out of max 5). Too expensive for the price asked under booking.com. They gave me a deduction of ca. 30% at the reception. Hotel is 30 – 40 years and needs to refurbished.

Room Tip: room with view to the marina.

Great, large rooms. Quick drive to Philipsburgh. Beautiful view of water and bay. No sandy beach but the pool isn't crowded and is away from the hotel rooms. Day trip to St. Barth's and sailboat chartering is at the dock area. Many convenient restaurants in area, especially the Dinghy Dock Bar.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the ocean, not the marina.

Large and clean rooms, friendly and accommodating staff. The pool isn't big but it wasn't crowded when we were there. The only big drawback is a lack of sandy beach. You can jump off from the dock and swim in the bay which is nice and calm, but its not something that the little kids could enjoy.

I booked Captain Olivers for it's location recalling how bad the traffic can be from Simpson Bay into Phillipsburg and it worked out well. It is no more than 15 minutes drive from Oyster Pond into Phillipsburg where I had to be for a few days. The hotel is ok for the price, the rooms could benefit from a refit but they are spacious, comfortable, and quiet, and the fridge in the room is a bonus. The restaurant food is ok and their Sunday lunch buffet excellent. When I booked I did not realise it was on the French side consequenntly they have 220v sockets not 110v.

Room Tip: The superior rooms with the ocean view are worth the extra money, the cheaper rooms are over the car...

Found the staff very accommodating and friendly. The rooms were surprisingly spacious. Clean and cool, a little dated, but comfortable. Thought it was a great location just over the French side. Couldn't ask for better! Will definitely visit again.....

We had an excellent time at this resort. The room was perfect with a rustic interior. We had one with a oceanview. Breakfast is not what you maybe expect but sufficiënt. The staff is very helpfull and friendly.

We decided to stay at Captain Oliver's in conjunction with a sailing charter. We chose it primarily for convenience but we were so pleased with our choice! From the moment we checked in, the staff made us feel at home and were so pleasant! The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The room had a small kitchenette and a balcony overlooking the water. The pool area was fantastic with several pool chairs and thatched umbrellas. Even though we were only here for two nights, we are making plans to return!
